How do I get my damn seats out? They look like they're held down by a huge Torx nut, but I've been to every hardware store around my area and none of them have a Torx socket big enough. am I missing something?

I cheated and used a regular 6 pt. socket without any issues. I don't remember what size though. I also helped a buddy and we did the same thing.

2 are large nuts and two are bolts. They are different sizes, used reg. sockets on both.

I know that with my seatbelts, the bit i needed was a T-50...and i know at most auto stores around here, they have them...the reg torx bits are easy to find...tamper proof ones are the biggest PITA...id bet you prob need a t-50 or sumthin along those lines...should be able to find the bit for under $5.

They are inverse torx if that makes sense?? The nut/bolt looks like the bit/socket you would normally use for torx.



In this picture the white part is what the bolt is like, so you need a socket to go on the outside of it, not a bit to go in.
